Our esteemed Governor Corbett signed a revised "Castle Doctrine" bill that eliminates the previous requirement to attempt to retreat. He also cut funding for public schools drastically rather than tax gas fracking companies.
House Bill 40: The bill, known as the “Castle Doctrine” bill, amends 18 Pa.C.S. (Crimes and Offenses) and 42 Pa.C.S. (Judiciary and Judicial Procedure) to expand and further define an individual’s right to use deadly force inside or outside of the individual’s dwelling, residence, or occupied vehicle. It eliminates an individual’s duty to retreat before using deadly force if the person is in a place the person has a right to be and believes that deadly force is necessary to protect himself against death, serious bodily injury, kidnapping, or sexual intercourse compelled by force or threat.
Here in PA you could claim that you believed that the burglar was going to force you to have sexual intercourse with his wife, and you would walk.
